The 3-Castles-Tour in Hartbergerland brings us to the historic walls of Reitenau Castle (Stambach), Aichberg Castle (Eichberg), and Kirchberg Castle (Grafendorf).
On the almost 30 kilometer long route we discover the Hartberg region from its rural and historical side. We cycle off the beaten track and follow in the footsteps of counts and castle lords. The circular route leads uphill and downhill and takes us to numerous great places in the region. On the way we can always convince ourselves of the regional cuisine and stop in various inns. In Eichberg we enjoy a panoramic view from the observation tower in the GERA Park, we can marvel at the Lebing burial mound or take a short break in the Mineralosolium. There is also the possibility to give our soles a short breather after the altitude meters covered and to relax our feet in the brook water Kneipp path. Also the "small" cyclists are offered a lot: In addition to the forest and hunting trail to climb the observation tower, there is a water park for children next to Aichberg Castle, and those who still have power can let off steam in the fitness park.
The observation tower in the G.E.R.A. Park offers a magnificent panoramic view over the region, reaching as far as Burgenland and Hungary!
